REVLON PHOTO-READY PERFECTING PRIMER
What it is: A primer that smoothes over pores, lines and other imperfections to allow your foundation to slip on flawlessly.
Consistency: When the product first came out of the pump, I noticed it was a bit thick, much like a balm and had a translucent white color.
Application: First off, I'm not really the type to wear primer. I only use base when I feel my skin isn't smooth or is mildly bumpy. After depositing some product onto my fingers, I warmed the product a bit by rubbing before applying onto my face. Next, I layered on the foundation. While the product did disappear onto my skin, it still kind of felt like I had an extra layer, rather than feeling completely weightless. It did however really make my skin look and feel smooth, making my bumps and lines disappear. Plus, I was matte all day!
Recommendation: I'd recommend this for special occassions when you really need full coverage. While I'm not one to really pile on much makeup anyway, I did notice that the rest of the products I put on after the primer did stay in tact for the entire day!
